ADMISSIONS, FEES AND UNIFORM
If you would like to enrol your child at St Dominic’s Catholic School for Girls , please complete the online click here to download the application form. It is advisable to apply for admission as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment.
Following receipt of your application form and registration fee you will be contacted by the school secretary to arrange for an interview and for your daughter to attend an assessment.
Should the School offer your daughter a place, which is accepted, you need to complete an Acceptance of Place Form and pay an enrollment fee to secure your daughters place.
